Building up, not out

By Joy Angelica Subido
Philippine Star
Saturday, April 5, 2008

That more Filipinos consider and eventually decide on condominium living is a positive development. Living in a high-rise means higher population density per square meter of land. In turn, this leaves more space that can be devoted to other uses. Nature conservation efforts and agriculture, for instance, greatly benefit from the effective reduction of urban sprawl. While the conservative homeowner could argue that the living space of a condominium is limited, current trends in architecture and interior design provide an effective means of managing space. Intelligent planning maximizes floor areas and increases efficiency in the home.

Living in a multi-level structure or high-rise building is likewise one effective means of lessening an individual’s carbon footprint. The unit owners may happily discover that living in a “just right” space in a good location means less electric bills, water consumption and less gasoline consumption to places of work or leisure. This is a boon for serious environmentalists who want to contribute to the anti-global warming effort.

Vista Land, one of the country’s most respected market leaders in property development, recognizes the importance of building up, not outwards. Its various subsidiaries provide alternatives for “vertical living” for all the different market sectors.

While Brittany builds for the discerning and upscale market with their innovative, world- inspired luxury residences, Crown Asia caters to upwardly bound middle-income families who require tasteful homes with stylish architecture and contemporary design. On the other hand, Camella Prestige provides well-built but affordable homes with excellent financing terms ideal for those who are just starting out.

Since it started vertical construction four years ago, the different companies of Vista Land have built 21 multi- story buildings and this translates to close to 4000 homes. The development is ongoing and more high- rise buildings are expected to rise. By positioning their developments in prime spots, the company makes the most of the best locations in the city. Multi-level structures allow more urban dwellers to call the best areas in the city “home.”

Inner City Living At Camella Prestige

Camella Prestige was created by Camella Homes & Communities to respond to the need of homeowners for inner city living. The subsidiary builds low, medium and high-rise homes, and affordability of units is a primary consideration. This makes the project accessible to clients who have just started with their careers.

“The biggest fulfillment is that we are an instrument for clients to achieve the dream of acquiring their own first homes,” says Ric A. Pallesco, division head of Camella Homes. He shares that the excitement and happiness is more palpable with this market. For both developer and broker, the bonus is to be able to share in the visible delight of the client over his new home.

Attractive and easy financing schemes make the projects accessible to more people. And clearly, Camella Prestige’s projects make aspiring for a home more than just another unattainable pipe dream.

The life at Pacific Residences

The first project of Camella Prestige is Pacific Residences in Taguig City. The development is five minutes away from Bonifacio Global City and 10 minutes away from Makati City. It features a clubhouse, central park, playgrounds, and swimming pool. Likewise, commercial spaces are integrated in the development.

Aside from three five-story condominium towers, the mixed-use community also has three-level townhouses and two-floor single detached homes.

However, what makes the five-story condominiums a cut above other projects by other developers is that these are equipped with elevators. The lifts make the top floors of the building readily accessible to young children, the disabled and elderly. Currently, the stylish single and multi-story residences are in the second phase and are 90-percent sold.

Going Italian at Laureano Di Trevi Towers

To reduce fuel consumption and contribute to the global effort against global warming, certain companies in the Western world now employ a work concept called “proximate commuting.” This enables their employees to report for work in the company’s office nearest their homes, thereby reducing time spent in traffic gridlock and lessening fuel consumption.

Imagine, however, the convenience of a leisurely stroll to work. This does only eliminate oil consumption, it also promotes a more active and healthy lifestyle.

Laureano di Trevi sits on a 5,000-sqm. prime property in Pasong Tamo, right next to Makati City’s central business and commercial district. With over 1,000 exclusive residences distributed in three towers, the project is designed by Palafox Associates, one of the Philippines’ premier design firms.

To promote the tenets of green architecture, the modern architectural style of Trevi is complemented by energy-efficient design. There are ventilation gratings, sunshades and heat reflective exterior closures.

Natural ventilation and lighting are maximized and promenades/ open spaces are part of the design

One need not leave home at Trevi since the ground floor will accommodate commercial establishments. It will be a “walkable community” and for an invigorating morning constitutional, the landscaped gardens, promenade and al fresco areas at the sixth floor Sky Plaza will be a treat.

The fresh life at Brescia

Blue like the sky, green of lush tropical foliage and yellow of happy sunshine. These are the colors of both tropical Philippines and this Crown Asia project. For Filipino foreign workers, there is nothing better than a homecoming to family and home at Brescia.

The 2.5-hectare Italian-inspired community development in Fairview, Quezon City, consists of 90 single attached/ detached homes and three multi-story dwellings.

The buildings are five-stories with 29 units in each, and the community includes a clubhouse, swimming pool, children’s playground and basketball court. There is a commercial area at the entrance of the subdivision, but Brescia is only a few minutes away from several shopping malls.

The best justification to invest in Brescia is its very reasonable cost of one million pesos. For overseas workers who endure homesickness and longing for family and homeland, investing in a dwelling that one can call his own somewhat makes up for the sacrifice of being away.

On The Way To The Top With Crown Asia

“Our company is re-imagining the way real estate is developed in the Philippines, turning land into unmatched vistas. Vista Land breaks away from the conventional when developing real estate.”

Crown Asia, a Vista Land subsidiary, stays true to this declaration by going the extra mile beyond what is expected of it. The company builds superior spaces for the “upwardly mobile” set at a reasonable cost. Recognizing its market’s aspiration for a higher standard of living, the company keenly responds with elan, innovation and design standards a cut above similar developments in the same class.

The extra effort is not merely to ensure that the property investments remain continuously valuable to property owners. More importantly, it reflects the company’s confidence in the particular market segment that it caters to. Crown Asia knows that to stay relevant in the future, only the best will do for this particular market that is bound to thrive and succeed.

In Tune with the Times at The Currency

The location of The Currency has everything going for it. Near premier schools like O.B Montessori, La Salle Greenhills and Xavier School, it is ideal for small families with school-age children. Its proximity to several malls and office buildings also makes it ideal as a business address. Not surprisingly, the 32 floors of The Currency will consist of residential, commercial and office units. Aside from being the first Crown Asia project for “total mixed use,” it is also the company’s first in the vibrant Ortigas business district.

Shared amenities at The Currency will include a clubhouse, swimming pool, gym/ fitness center and daycare center. Asian considerations are addressed, and the project has been designed so that it is feng-shui-compliant. Of course, the best building practices are given utmost regard. Strength-reinforced concrete columns and beams will be used and the building is earthquake-proof.

Because of its accessible location, ownership at The Currency ensures that “you are at the right place at the perfect time.”

The Art of Living a Good Life at The Gallery at Salcedo

Through the years, Salcedo Village has become known for the colorful Salcedo Market with its vibrant colors and friendly energy. The Crown Asia development called The Gallery at Salcedo will infuse even more dynamism to the place.

The project was begun in December 2007 and is up for completion by 2011.

The 32-story building on Leviste St. will house 300 units, with current prices starting at approximately P2.5M. Amenities include a state-of-the-art gym, swimming pool and function rooms. The ground floor will house commercial establishments and coffee shops. Architectural design is by highly esteemed firm Recio+Casas, a sound assurance of top-quality development.

Lakefront Living at Presidio

Lakefront living at Presidio covers eight hectares of land with refreshing views of Laguna de Bay. A discernible advantage of the location is the cooling breeze that blows in from the lake. Recio+Casas architects designed the neo-Victorian structures. Currently, two buildings have been turned over to new owners, with another building due for turnover this year.

Meanwhile four buildings are still under construction. The end-plan is “an interplay in size and height” for Presidio’s projected16 towers.

A strong marketing campaign abroad has encouraged overseas-based Filipinos to purchase units at the Presidio. The self-contained, multi-hub development by the bay in the boundary of Sucat and Taguig makes an excellent primary or vacation address.
